We visited the restaurant with a large group (15) during mid-evening hours (7:30 - 9:00). The servers were very accomodating, including adding 2 surprise visitors to our table with no issue and with pace. They juggled multiple bills with varying types of orders, and did not pressure us to leave, despite other folks waiting. I enjoyed the salad I ordered,... More

I have visited several locations which have all been pretty great. This one is no exception. Service was top-notch and the steaks are amazing. I've also tried the salads at other locations, which are all uniquely good as well. I don't think I've had anything bad here. Prices are reasonable for the quality. Always a good option to go here...

Very friendly staff. Went Good Friday for dinner. Food was slow. Our waiter was apologetic. We had grilled Scottish salmon which was perfectly cooked. Loved it! For the side, staff said it usually goes with orzo & wild rice but I could substitute. I wish I did. The orzo & wild rice was actually cold salad. It did not think... More

My husband and I planned our anniversary dinner at this restaurant and drove in from Indianapolis. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was a nice warm atmosphere. we chose to come to J Alexander's because we had dinner at the restaurant in Oakbrook, IL and it was one of the most delicious steaks we had ever had. We ordered... More

We visited a J Alexanders back in the summer right after it changed its name to Redlands Grille. At that time, they had changed the menu and the wonderful Thai Kai Salad was off the menu. I was so disappointed! When we stopped in last week, it was back on the menu! It makes a great entree salad. My husband... More

Great beef, steaks and prime rib. The desserts are very special if you save room for one, we always share. They were recently bought and we were concerned the menu/quality might change. We should not have worried, they are still great!

Fantastic lunch at a reasonable price. A very short distance from I-71 (downtown Cincinnati). They even opened the door for me when I left!

I come here once a week for lunch and maybe once a month for dinner. If we lived closer, we would be here more often for dinner.

This is an excellent restaurant for doing business. The atmosphere is very conducive to that and the food quite wonderful. The salmon and ahi tun are very good. They have a good bar, as well.

Had a holiday lunch here the other day and we were glad we made reservations as it was packed. We were greeted right away and taken to a nice booth by a window. Our drink order was taken (not too difficult; two beers and two glasses of wine). and following that we got a lot of smiles and apologies because... More
